Makes 30-40

INGREDIENTS

10 graham cracker sheets

¼ cup confectioner’s sugar

1 teaspoon Kosher salt

1 stick melted butter

16 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 cup confectioner’s  sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups chocolate chips, melted

PREPARATION
1. In a plastic bag, crush the graham crackers finely with the back of a large pot or pan.

2. In a large bowl, combine graham crackers, combine confectioner’s sugar, salt, and melted butter, stirring until the mixture is the texture of wet sand. Dump the graham cracker mixture into a 9x9 baking dish lined with parchment paper. Press the mixture down with your hands to create an even layer. Freeze for 10 minutes.

3. In a separate bowl, combine cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla, stirring until smooth. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly on top of the graham cracker crust. Freeze for one hour.

4. Transfer the frozen cheesecake onto a cutting board, peeling away the parchment paper. Slice 1-centimeter strips horizontally, then vertically, creating little cheesecake cubes.

5. In a medium bowl, microwave the chocolate in 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Dip the cheesecake cubes in the chocolate, dripping off excess, and set them on a tray lined with parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining cubes. Freeze for 15 minutes, then serve!

¼ cup cornstarch

1 cup water

8 tablespoons butter

½ cup flour

4 eggs

3. Crush cookies in a blender or a food processor until fine. Set aside.

4. In a pot over low heat, combine egg yolks, half & half, sugar, and cornstarch. Turn the heat up to medium-high, whisking constantly to prevent any lumps.

5. Once the mixture starts to thicken, add in half of the cookie cream, stirring until smooth.

6. Transfer the cream mixture into a bowl, covering the top with plastic wrap and pressing the wrap down onto the surface of the cream to prevent a skin from forming. Chill.

8. Add in the eggs one a time, stirring until the dough becomes a paste. Transfer the dough into a piping bag with a large round tip.

9. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, pipe 1-inch mounds. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry has risen considerably and the insides are dry.

10. Transfer the chilled pastry cream into a piping bag with a small tip. Poke a hole in the center of the bottom of each cream puff and fill each puff with the pastry cream.

11. Microwave the remaining cookie cream for 30 seconds, stirring until smooth.
